It's Official...she's a TEENAGER!

My GOODNESS--is time flying or what!?!  I can't believe I officially have 2 teenagers in this house--and that they haven't killed eachother yet!  J/K--they actually get along pretty well!  Erin turned the big 13 yesterday, and we were able to take her out to eat on Friday and SURPRISE--her favorite--SHOPPING for her birthday!  Then her cousins took her out on the town yesterday for some birthday fun!  I love Erin so much because, well, she reminds me the most of ME!  Here are 13 things we LOVE about our Erin:
13.  Erin is LOUD--she doesn't have an "inside voice"--so even when we're old, and deaf, we will be able to hear her!
12.  Erin is friendly--she loves people, and isn't afraid to talk to just about anyone!
11.  Erin is SMART--yep, she's smart as a whip, even though she will tell you no she's not, and she hates school, you should see her AIMS scores--the girl is amazingly smart!
10.  Erin loves music, you rarely see her without her ipod somewhere close!  She also loves Facebook & keeping in touch with her friends 24/7!
9.  Erin is a great babysitter, and she loves her brothers and sisters.  She also loves to TEASE them as only she can do!
8.  Erin has a great SMILE--and she is always wearing it!
7.  She is naturally talented at just about everything she tries--except maybe ice skating--I heard that didn't go very well--and she brought a few people down with her!
6.  She can talk people into just about ANYTHING using her charm and wit.  I am amazed with what she got away with at school with her teachers--she will probably be able to talk her way out of a few speeding tickets too!
5.  She has the best LAUGH--and can get anyone giggling right along with her!
4.  She is STRONG!  They have been doing a Crossfit Kids class--and this kid is amazingly STRONG!  I am proud of her!
3.  She has the best complexion, and a beautiful skin tone--she doesn't even have to wear ANY make-up!  SOOOOooooooo jealous!  =)  She gets a tan without ever burning either--amazing!
2.  She has a strong will--which in some ways is hard for me to deal with--but I also know that she will need to be strong and stubborn to grow up in this world full of wickedness.  I know that Erin will be strong headed when it comes to standing up for herself and choosing the right!
1.  Erin is the BEST DAUGHTER IN THE WORLD--and for sure MY FAVORITE!  (Oh, did I say that already?)

We love you sweetheart!  Happy Birthday!
